This study investigated the stressful life events, psychosocial
variables and the predictors of depressive symptoms in 127 participants
who were living in shelters. The age range varied from 7 to 16 years
old. The CDI and IEEIA were twice administrated. Taking into account the
CDI score, the frequency of stressful life events, longitudinal
differences were not observed. The multiple linear regression allowed to
consider a model of predictors that explain together 56.7% of the
differences on the CDI scores. The prevention of events related mainly
to conflicts in the school and within families should be emphasized, as
well as the promotion of interventions directed to families in situation
of biggest vulnerability. © Universitas Psychologica Universidad
